Jane has a Humanities degree from Brigham Young University with emphases in Art History, Italian Language, and Studio Art. She's CRAZY about the visual and performing arts! Jane enjoys playing classical piano, painting & sketching, singing & acting, and especially writing poetry & prose.

But her real passion is PEOPLE. She loves to watch and study what makes us tick as human beings. Jane is definitely a dreamer. Her favorite thing to do is weave together sublime settings and stories for characters to live and learn in...herself included.

She currently lives in an enchanted fairy-princess castle in Dallas, Texas, with her three often-adorable children and their three seldom-adorable cats.

I want everything in my writing to be authentic, and that comes down to motivation. I take my research very seriously. I'm passionate about what makes peeps tick, and I'm never bored while learning from my fellow humans. Of course, I usually only get glimpses into the lives of the strangers I observe. That's where the dreaming comes in. My imagination is off the hook. Combining real-life with fantasy is such a trip! (less)
